Substance Painter 2 question.
show user profile  S. Silard
Greetings. I just started to learn Substance Painter 2, and followed their official tutorial, and I saw that their texture tab on the shelf is empty, while my is filled with a lot of stuff. In theory this is the part where I should put in my textures from file, but it's not really comfortable if I have that many other stuff in it. I tried File->Clear and it did not helped, so, how do I remove these? Or can I make my own tab?

I'd imagine there would be a directory in the programs folder which stores all of these. I would do a directory search of one or two of the icons. Such as 'cross'.

If for whatever reason the textures are named through a config file of sorts you could do the same thing but with a texture you create.

That's where I'd start anyways.

when you start a project I belive it asks you for texture files you want to add as-well, at least thats how I thought it worked... I imagine you'd know if you added all these at that step.

Those that you add at the beginning of a new project are different textures, called additional maps, and are meant to store baked maps for all materials.
Importing a texture into the shelf is simple, it's just a drag and drop operation. Only there's so much other texture that's not needed, that it gets messy pretty quickly.

Searched it, and these texture are located here: C:\Program Files\Allegorithmic\Substance Painter 2\resources\shelf\allegorithmic\textures
in a bunch of subfolders, and I'm not sure if it uses these for any other stuff.

Here's the tutorial I'm referring to. Check it at 1:20

I found it as well at C:\Users\"Username"\Documents\Substance Painter 2\shelf\allegorithmic\textures
So can I delete it without braking the software?

Copy it to your desktop. Take a shot of vodka. Delete the folder.

Of course 10mins after you delete them, there will be one you'll want ;)

3Ddeath Is that folder empty for you?
I don't delete it because I'm not sure it doesn't uses some of those textures for brushes for example. And I'm afraid I don't know the software well enough yet to notice a difference.

No, I got all those textures as shown in your screenshot there.

I choose to keep them so you're on your own on this one, but I can't see any program breaking from deleting anything in "my documents" its usually user specific data such as saves/ preferences / ect....

[edit] ok so there are two locations of substance painter in documents, one if you follow the c/uisers path and the other if u just go to my documents... windows is fun
